I came completely off the bike and landed a good body length away from the bike (about 6'). My feet came out of the pedals before the bike hit the ground. I had several close calls over the rest of the weekend (60 mile bikepacking trip) and not once did I think about getting my feet out of the pedals.
Masochist !!

You write about your injuries as if you enjoy them!?!?

A unique defense of clipless to be sure i.e. to enjoy pain.
